The Need is Great in Honduras


Honduras has one of the highest populations living in extreme poverty in Central America. Although some progress has been made, its progress ranks one of the lowest in the region. 57.1% of the people in Honduras live under poverty line at $5.50 per day, which is not enough to survive. Historically Honduras has been dependent on exports of bananas and coffee, they have diversified their exports to include apparel and automobile wire harnessing, but the economy remains heavily dependent on U.S. trades. Honduras struggles financially with a high unemployment rate and a very high unequal distribution of wealth. Our Mentors Honduras staff and dedicated to helping families throughout their country on their journeys towards greater self-reliance. Take a moment to watch our short video highlighting our great mentoring staff and their inspiring work.
